# A massless inextensible string in the form of a loop is placed on a horizontal film of soap solution of surface tension T. If film is pierced inside the loop and it convert into a circular loop of diameter d, then the tension produced in string is- 1) Td, 2) πTd, 3) πd^2T, 4) πd^2T/4

Asked by patra04011965 12th January 2019, 1:20 PM

Figure shows a length Δl of loop subjected to Tension F and surface tension forces.
Tension force F is acting tangentially and can be resolved into horizontal components F cos(θ/2) and vertical components F sin(θ/2).
where θ is the angle subtended by Δl at center.

Horizontal components cancel each other.  Vertical components of tension is balanced by surface tension force 2TΔl.

2F sin(θ/2) = 2TΔl = 2T×rθ

r is radius and let d be diameter of loop

Hence F = T×rθ/ sin(θ/2)  = 2r×T = d×T  [ we have assumed for small angle sin(θ/2) = θ/2 ]
